Giuliana Salmaso

Giuliana Salmaso is Co-Creative Director of 1+1=1 architects, the design studio she founded with her partner in work and life, maestro Claudio Silvestrin. She is an architect, well-being design coach, Emotional Intelligence assessor and educator. Her goal is to bring well-being in people’s lives by creating clean, calming and contemporary spaces designed to lower stress, promote serenity, activate a sense of inner connection, and increase vitality – all of which helps people to reach a state of true well-being that enables them to thrive.
From 2004 to 2009, Giuliana taught at Politecnico di Milano, one of Italy’s top schools of Architecture and Design. In 2012, she was awarded the Premio Città Impresa to mark a milestone in her successful creative career. She runs design and architecture trainings, workshops, and retreats internationally.
Alongside her architectural work, Giuliana is Network Leader Coordinator for Italy for Six Seconds, a not-for-profit organisation supporting the study and practice of Emotional Intelligence worldwide.
Giuliana is passionate, innovative and enthusiastic in everything she does. Her two sons, Giotto and Galileo, inspire her every day to live a life of unconditional love and connection to her truest, most authentic self.

Claudio Silvestrin

Claudio Silvestrin co-founded 1+1=1 Architects in 2004. Born in 1954, Claudio studied under Italian architect and designer AG Fronzoni in Milan and at the Architectural Association in London. He has gained worldwide recognition for his vision, integrity, clarity of mind, inventiveness and eye for detail. He shares his life with his partner, Giuliana Salmaso, and their two sons, Giotto and Galileo.
Claudio has extensive experience as a visiting professor. In 2013 he was appointed Walton Critic and tutored at the Catholic University of America, in Washington DC.
Claudio is a man whose vision encompasses the vast as well as the minute. He stands for difference rather than uniformity, quality rather than quantity, fewer projects rather than many.
